What's New in Version 2.0.1
- app icon revision, original icon theme
The outstanding feature of 'StockTouch' is its presentation concept, which greatly increases the viewer's comprehension of the data being presented. That feature alone sets this app apart from its competition. I hope it's creator will continue this exact 'look' into the future. I'd pay for this app.
Others have complained about the data not being totally current in time; I haven't determined if that complaint is valid. I have noted that beginning in June of 2014, that there is no data for the current day's NASDAQ performance, although there is for both the DOW and S&P.
The creator of Stock Touch is one smart guy in my book. I thank him for this app.
Excellent overview of markets
This app provides intuitive views of the US stock market as a whole. The ability to see the whole market by sector at once and yet quickly drill down to individual stocks and get news and statistics is invaluable.
One drawback (for which 3/4 of a star was removed) is the lack of an absolute/dollar price change view under "Display Statistics." The standard percent change view works, but you can get a sense of the relative price change from the intensity of the green and red background anyway. The percentage change is precise abut slightly redundant. I would like to see a view with relative price change in color but a display of the dollar change for the number displayed.
Another drawback is that the big-three indices (S&P 500, NASDAQ, DJIA) status bar blocks the bottom row of stocks. (Half a star off, rounded up to 4 stars.)
There are no real-time updates, but you won't use this to monitor event-sensitive issues in any case, so no stars removed for that.
Thanks for listening...
Thanks for listening to your users and their feedback regarding the app icon. I've enjoyed this app for a while, so I'd probably give it a 4 (or 5, if I'm feeling generous) anyway, but the fact that the developer actually listened to the feedback from the users and reverted to the previous icon warrants the 5th star for sure.
